Today has been a little crazy. Went out to four wineries for a friend’s birthday and am just getting to today’s review which is…
- 6.0% ABV
Poured from bottle into mug. Off-white head that lasted for a few moments. Very minimal carbonation. It is a deep brown-black color that’s completely opaque.
It has a very chocolatey with some maltiness aroma. I also get the vanilla coming through a lot too.
Wow, it’s just like the name of the beer – vanilla and java are the dominate flavors. I don’t really get much else. No hops, minimal maltiness, lots of, you know it, vanilla and coffee flavors.
It has a thick, dense texture that barely lasts more than a minute.
– FOOD PAIRING
I’m thinking s’mores from Cosi. This is definitely a dessert beer.
– OVERALL THOUGHTS
It reminds me of Butternuts Moo Thunder Stout. It has a good taste to it but it’s not very beer-y.
Sorry for keeping it so brief tonight. Lots of conflicts happening at the moment — been to multiple wineries, sitting on a friend’s computer, being bugged to hurry up, etc. Thanks for being a part of the April Dirty Thirty project. Keep the tweets and comments coming, you’re doing outstanding! Remember to use #AprilDirty30. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this beer, what you had tonight, what you’ve tried recently, anything.
Try something new. Share it with the world. Grow your palate and beer knowledge.
